TNRD to take cannabis bylaw to public hearing

Cannabis production will be permitted; cannabis retail stores will remain banned

The Thompson-Nicola Regional District will take to a public hearing proposed changes to its cannabis bylaw.

The zoning amendments follow cannabis legalization in October and are intended to clean up language — eliminating references to “medical” — and pave way for craft cannabis production facilities less than 200 metres in size.

The TNRD is also aiming to maintain a ban on retail cannabis stores. It says there is limited demand in the regional district and that people can come forward with applications for rezoning on a case-by-case basis.
